Design and reconstruct I-275 (SR 93) between SR-60 (Memorial Highway) and the Hillsborough River in Tampa, Florida. The improvements to I-275 include replacing the existing highway with four northbound through lanes from Westshore Boulevard to Himes Avenue, and four southbound through lanes from SR 60 (Memorial Highway) to the Hillsborough River. Ramps and interchanges will be modified to improve traffic flow. The construction design-build team has developed a traffic control plan with just three major traffic shifts to help reduce driver confusion and reduce the time needed to build the project. Still, closures will be needed on I-275, the interchange ramps, and streets under and next to the interstate. Most closures will be done during night hours. During peak hours, three lanes in each direction available before construction will remain open throughout the life of the project.
